The Oakland Center offers a number of opportunities and services for the community, including meeting spaces, dining, and more.

The Oakland Center is located in the heart of Oakland University’s main campus.

Oakland University is located in southeastern Michigan between Flint and Detroit. The 1,441-acre campus actually extends into two cities — Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills, between Adams Road and Squirrel Road, just south of Walton Boulevard. Take I-75 to exit 79 and go east on University Drive to the main entrance of campus. Or, take M-59 to the Squirrel Road exit and go north to the main entrance of campus at the corner of University Drive.

From OU’s Main Entrance

To get to the Oakland Center from the main entrance of campus, drive around the circle drive past the first entrance to Meadow Brook Road until you get to the second entrance to Meadow Brook Road and turn right. The Oakland Center is located on the right side of the road between North and South Foundation Halls. The best place to park is in Parking Lot 1.


Oakland University does not require parking passes or stickers anywhere on campus, and free parking is available in Parking Lot 1 as well as in other lots on campus. For more information on parking at OU, see the Parking page.
